Excellent spot to enjoy a drink and look across the bay at the Miami skyline. Great ambience...,cannot comment on food because we just had time for a drink. It had been recommended by the Biltmore Coral Gables concierge for the unique view and setting.

Every time I visit Miami, I go to the Rusty Pelican, usually for dinner. This time I was a little disappointed, the service was slow, and the food was a little too expensive for what you get. Excellent wine selection! Next time I will hit...More

I visited this place for a business dinner with a large group, despite the fact that the service was pretty much perfect, the taste of the food lacked some aspects that you would expect in this class of restaurant. Perfect view though

I have been to many restaurants in Amelia Island, and this is my favorite restaurant on the island. Fantastic service, and fantastic food. Just an all around great experience.

Great food and service. Best views of downtown Miami. Good drinks and wine selection. Menu has seafood to beef and sushi. Outside seating in the cooler months is great with firepits. Summer is too hit to sit outside but the views are still great

Description
You haven't seen Miami until you've seen it from The Rusty Pelican Restaurant and Special Events Center. The Rusty Pelican is the most sought after restaurant with a view in South Florida. With the sun setting on Biscayne Bay against the backdrop of the alluring Miami skyline, The Rusty Pelican is the perfect spot for a romantic interlude or that special occasion. Located in Florida on the Island of Key Biscayne and just minutes away from Interstate-95. The Rusty Pelican has a breathtaking view of the City of Miami while offering superb cuisine and service. The fresh seafood changes with the season, deliciously enhanced with island-influenced salsas and flavors.
